They're made to stop at high RPMs it will burn the clutches up so I would start with pump and clutches... Hope this helps

Blend door actuators are vacuum operated so when the engine needs vacuum the blend doors shut

A vacuum leak at the actuator or the vacuum tank can cause problems when accelerating or going up hills.

That has to be what it is alright, I can hear the doors shutting when I accelerate, when I step on the brakes I believe the heater blend door opens up because I feel hot air coming through the vents, this is driving me crazy, hot air in the florida sun is not fun
